Sketchy Thursdays Second Chance Challenge

Happy Saturday!!

Lots of fun stuff going on today!!!  On the home front, it's my son's first ever baseball game.  We'll see how that goes. 

Over on Sketchy Thursdays we're hosting another Second Chance Challenge. 

This one is being sponsored by Lil Scrappin Mama which is a kit club. 

They are offering up their October kit for the prize. 

A sneaky peek at what is in the kit up for grabs:

Check out the Lil Scrappin Mama site for the whole scoop.

Let me tell you, our Design Team were lucky enough to get to play with these kits and O. M. G. they are FABULOUS!! Every single piece included is gloriously scrappable. The only problem I encountered with the kit was having to decide which pieces to use first! I can tell I am going to be able to make SEVERAL layouts!!  I truly have never been so excited about a scrapbooking kit before!!

So anyway, the Sketchy Thursdays Second Chance Challenge is to create a layout:

* with a fall or family theme

* with browns and oranges as the MAIN color scheme

* with a pop of either TEAL or HOT PINK added to the color scheme

And, you don't have to use a Sketchy Thursdays sketch, although it is encouraged.

April 2011 issue

This layout is created entirely from pieces from the Lil Scrappin Mama kit except for the teal flower, the thread, and the stamping on the "together" card.  Yep!  That STUNNING orange flower is in the kit.  As well as all the ribbons you see. 
And now I'm a HUGE fan of Dream Street Papers because of this kit. Would you LOOK at those?? And they're double sided!! AND both sides are gorgeous. I made sure to save my extras, including the bit of the owl paper that was behind the brown and blue polka dot paper. No point in wasting it, especially when it's so YUMMY!
Did you notice?  I used the 9/24 Sketchy Thursdays sketch.  It's my fave so far!! 

So, why don't you join us for this Second Chance Challenge?  You have until Friday night at midnight (EST) to enter your layout!! 

Talk to you soon (and I mean soon...check back here today at noon EST for another fun post).


p.s.  OK, I'm really, Really, REALLY going to start begging here...please, oh pretty please would you take the time to bop on over to the Torendi site and vote for my Domo "HiYa!" card?  (You can see it in the sidebar or on THIS POST at the top.)  Thank you!!!  XOXO
